About Francesco Simeti

Italian-born artist Francesco Simeti (b. 1968, Italy) embeds hidden images within decorative pattern to point to a darker subtext. Concerned with the dissemination of violent imagery and information through the media, which at times reduces horrific events to trivial episodes, Simeti comments on mass desensitization and its potential repercussions. He received his degree in sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts (Bologna) and lives and works in New York.
